Over the three day period, Dr. Cooper met with the Executive Director, Dr. Robin Maraj and SBCS’ UoL Administrative staff, faculty and students. In addition, she conducted classroom observations, toured the Champs Fleurs campus and met students from each year of the programme.

 

Commenting on her experience, Dr. Cooper indicated that she was very pleased by the feedback given by the students. She was also impressed with the teaching styles applied by our lecturers, particularly the manner in which they were able to captivate the students’ attention and encourage student participation.

 

Dr. Cooper also participated in SBCS’ San Fernando’s Career/Open Day on Sunday, March 25, 2012, where she met both potential and current UoL students.
